Episode 19: Liberal Perspectives on Philippine Education:
Is the Philippines Educating for Competitiveness?
From the perspective of a globalized world, Juan
Miguel “Mike” Luz, International Institute
of Rural Reconstruction president, explores whether
is educating for competitiveness or is barely
trying to educate for competence. He discusses five
disconnects in Philippine education: the two-types
of Philippine basic education, the low pay of teachers,
the school age of children, the male drop-out rate
and the isolation of Muslim Filipino children.
